NMASS is organizing to stop wage theft, end the 24-hour workday, and protect our communities from displacement!
Do you have workplace problems or face displacement? Do you want to fight alongside workers?
Come to the NMASS workers’ center or contact us!
345 Grand Street, New York, NY, 10022
Sunday – Friday 11am-6pm | Closed on Saturdays
We organize as workers: native-born & immigrant; documented & undocumented; from all backgrounds.
Now more than ever, people see the need to come together regardless of our race, immigration status, or type of work to fight the exploitation we face at the hands of the developers, sweatshop bosses, and corporate interests—aided by our government. We organize together in our workplaces and our neighborhoods to end the systemic racism and exploitation that gives rise to wage theft, 24-hour workdays, environmental racism and displacement.
Your contribution supports a movement of working people who envision control in our workplaces and communities, and control of our time—demands that unify us across race, trade, nationality, and immigration status. It is thanks to supporters like you that for nearly 30 years we have continued organizing workers.
